"Bill Hudnut improved the quality of life for all Indianapolis citizens, leaving an indelible impression on one of America?s great cities." ?Senator Richard G. Lugar
"This book is the story of a great American turnaround: the rebirth of our 12th largest city.... For those who care about municipal governance, this book is well worth reading."Â ?David Osborne, co-author of ÂReinventing Government
"Abandon all fear of boredom, ye who enter these pages." ?Congressman Andy Jacobs, Jr.
During Bill Hudnut?s 16-year tenure as mayor of Indianapolis, the city was transformed from India-No-Place to what has been called the Miracle of the Rust Belt?and much of the credit for this renaissance belongs to Bill Hudnut. Here he reflects on the trials, tribulations, and many successes of his stint as mayor, and invites supporters and critics alike to comment on the Hudnut years. The result is an insider?s look at the politics, personalities, and problems of a major urban center.
Dal retro di copertina: In this book the former Mayor tells the story of his sixteen years as the head of Indianapolis, the problems he faced, how he perceived them, how the city organized to meet them, and where he succeeded and where he failed. Anyone interested in these important years in the history of Indianapolis will be fascinated by this book, as will students of urban government generally. In addition to presenting his own account, Hudnut has asked scholars to offer their assessment of his administration's performance in a number of key areas: fiscal health, the amateur-sports strategy, neighborhoods and their relationship to UNIGOV, the police department, the politics of health, education, the urban environment, and affirmative action. A group of citizen activists and political opponents were also asked to comment on the Hudnut years. In a final chapter, Hudnut offers a summary of the lessons he learned about the role of a mayor and the problems of urban governments.
